Conclusion

Parasitic infections are distributed worldwide and affect hundreds of millions of individuals, causing significant morbidity and mortality. A broad spectrum of parasitic infections can manifest with abnormal imaging findings in the thorax. Although most of these infections result in nonspecific abnormalities, familiarity with their imaging features as well as their epidemiologic, clinical, and physiopathologic characteristics may permit the formulation of an adequate differential diagnosis.
